    Hello Friend,

    Pc/laptop hangs when your cpu usage is going to be more than 50-60% and your ram usage is upto 75-80%

    CPU stands for central processing unit and this usage only increases when processor is using your hard disk in any task.

    RAM stands for random access memory and this increases on increase of applications.

    To check the both usage and running application you have to follow some steps as :

    1. Right click on task bar and then click on task manager

    2. Now click on processes in task manager :

    3. Now select the extra running process running in your computer but not visible to decrease them usage but
    mostly
    cpu usage increase more than 50% due to viruses so you can perform boot time scan for your computer

    good luck.........!!!

    hello friends

    I think your antivirus who are install in your computer, is not supported in your computer. it is heavy antivirus and that do the slow of your computer as a your computer configuration. to solve this problem you increase the RAM when antivirus is working properly else you uninstall the antivirus and install the another antivirus and also do the disk cleanup in your drive.

    it is most important that you delete the temporary file time to time that file do the computer slow and also delete the recently file time to time..

    To delete the temporary in just type the "temp" in run and press enter then open the temp window delete the all the file.. and same do with the type the "%temp%" and "recent" in the run.

    hii

    The problem of hanging of your PC when you try to copy , paste or install some software is due to the over loading of your PC...

    Yes , it can easily be understood taking an example of a mobile phone ..
    Just like when the phone's memory is full with the data in it then there are more chances of it that it hangs and also it becomes slow ...

    The first step of hanging starts from the slowing down of computer and then leads to the hanging problem ..
    For this problem to solve make sure to remove all the unnecessary data in your hard disk drives so that to free it up a little ..

    Also uninstall the softwares which you dont use more often to free up space ...
    You should also do a system antivirus check so as to see if it contains any viruses ..
    Do a disk defregmentation and clean up in your system ..

    thanks
